unconscious swimmer . many reporters were told that he will not receive any special treatment. the sheriff laurie smith says she is not happy with the situation. we are awaiting brock turner's release. janine has been talking with reporters and people who came along way to be there to protest. >> reporter: that is correct. there are protesters here but the majority of people here are the media. there are about 70 to 80 members of the media here. in the last 5 minutes, deputies also came out. it seems like something is going to happen soon. brock turner could be released at any minute. we are staying close to this window that you see over here because that is where he is going to get processed. a little bit ago we did see a number of deputies there. they looked like they had a riot helmets with them with
6:01 am
face shields and it seemed like a lot more activity. we are being told by the sheriff that brock turner will not receive any special treatment once he leaves here at the main jail. we are told it is supposed to happen anytime now this morning. sheriff's officials say that releases are done during the daylight hours to ensure safety. that's why they have a lot of safety measures in place including barricades and all of the added patrol officers. we are not sure if the family will be here to pick him up, but it's likely he will be whisked away quickly, perhaps in a waiting car -- into a waiting car. we are going to have to see. another thing he will be facing his protesters. we spoke to them in the last hour. here is what they have to say. >> it's very frustrating. it just doesn't seem -- i don't understand how they can justify this. it doesn't make sense to me how he could do that to someone who was unconscious and go behind buyers -- behind bars for three
6:02 am
months. >> he absolutely got away with rape which is worse than getting away with murder. there's no doubt in my mind that he will do it again. >> reporter: turner was convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious swimmer behind the dumpster at stanford. judge aaron persky sentenced him to six-month in jail boutique is only serving three months it due to good behavior. that has set off a firestorm with people -- six months in jail but he has only served three months due to good behavior. that has set off a firestorm with people. he will have to register as a sex offender when he returns to his home in ohio. everyone is waiting and watching to see what moment turner is going to come out. it seems like something is going to happen soon. we have been keeping our eyes glued to the window inside the jail just to see if he is going
6:03 am
to reappear. as soon as he does, we will definitely have that for you. we will see if he is going to answer any of our questions that we are going to have as he walks out. back to you. >> thank you janine. a quick question, we sought sharon smith come out and talk to you and us earlier. do we know if she is going to be walking out with the deputies with brock turner? a do you have any indication on that? >> we didn't get any indication. she had just come out. one question i asked her was, have you seen brock turner this morning. she said she had not seen him. that was about one hour ago. it seems like he might be escorted down by the deputies. it is hard to tell. they may be just standing there to make sure nothing gets out of hand. >> we are hearing right now that the deputies are going to come out in about 2 minutes from now. we're getting the word that they are coming out at 6:05. you haven't seen him come in however.
6:04 am
we understand he still has to be processed, fingerprint before he walks out the door. is that right? >> he does. along with that he is going to be given his belongings that he had to check in when he first came into the main jail. he will also receive the letters that he received, some hate mail that he received while he was staying here at the main jail. who knows if he will hang onto those were just throw them away saying keep them. he will be getting those. i'm not sure if that's going to be a surprise to him. one can only imagine what he is going to face once he comes out and back into civilization, as well as back in ohio. we understand he's going to face protesters in ohio. everyone knows the name of brock turner right now because of this high profile case that he is involved in. >> it's interesting because
6:05 am
fishing kaepernick -- colin kaepernick -- covering that story, there's going to be a lot of people released from jail. they are going to be caught in this frenzy of activity. >> reporter: absolutely! there are even some passerby's it weren't planning on staying here but because they are seeing all of the media here and because they have heard of brock turner, they are saying, i am going to stay. that is why the crowd keeps growing and growing. all sorts of media is here, cnn, national network shows such as "good morning america", the today show as well as all kinds of local national media. we have been told by the public information officer here that they have been getting phone calls and all sorts of inquiries over the last few days. they had been hammered with requests from the media wanting to get information about brock
6:06 am
turner in the release and how every things going to go. >>he could be marched out in front of the media any moment now. we're watching the clock and we know you are watching the door. can you tell us about where the protesters are physically? >> reporter: just so you know right now, obviously we are in front of the main jail. this is where we are but one building over is the hall of justice where the protest is going to be. the protesters are mixed in the crowd right now. there aren't too many of them. i can see a few of them in front of me. they said that they want to be here and they want to look brock turner in the eye. they said they won't say anything. we will have to see. they are hoping there is going to be some kind of glimmer of remorse in his eyes. they felt like they needed to be here to see him be released.
6:07 am
they are very frustrated with the sentence that he received, three months -- six months that has now been reduced to 3 months because of good behavior and the jail overcrowding situation. >>janine, i know you are keeping an ims and you have that window you are watching. -- you are keeping an i on this and you have that window you are watching. let us know as soon as anything happens. now we want to take you to jesse gary who is also out there. are there any signs of someone who is going to pick up brock turner? >> reporter: a vehicle just pulled out out in front of the main jail which is behind the camera position that you are looking at. you are looking at a shot of the stairs of brock turner will walk out. he's going to walk out the main door and then come down the steps. there's a white suv that looks like a ford. i can't tell if it has mental plates or out-of- state plates. it is pulled out in front of
6:08 am
the main steps and we're told that brock turner will be leaving momentarily. areas. areas. there is brock turner. >> rock, [ overlapping speakers ] -- brock turner. [ overlapping speakers ] do you apologize? [ overlapping speakers ] [ shouting ] >> reporter: and there you go. druck -- brock turner just walk down the steps and got into this white suv and drove off. there were a couple of people that yelled some things at him as he got into the suv but he is now headed off toward -- the airport would be the opposite direction. i didn't see the exact direction that the suv when in. he has headed off back to ohio. >> that happened very quickly. we don't know when he could head to the airport. we don't know how quickly this will happen, as you mention. we do have a photographer and a camera headed behind the car right now. this is a live picture of brock turner's car. did you see who was in the car?
6:09 am
>> reporter: i believe it was a gentleman but i couldn't see because there were people obscuring the view. i didn't want to miss brock turner coming out which was in the opposite direction. i had to watch the front door and peek over my shoulder at the car. but there was somebody. the vehicle had been parked down the block and was in that area, i noticed it there 5 minutes prior. then it came out. let's see if we can get a word with the sheriff, laurie smith. that when quickly. >> it did go quickly. now that he is out, is at the end of your connection to this? will there be deputies that will export into the airport? >> that's the end. he should never have been in our jail. he should've been in prison. this is the end of it for us. he has been released from custody. >> reporter: did he take anything with him? >> i don't know. they would've released the
6:10 am
property that he came with. i don't know what he had. reporter mike did he say anything before he left? -- >> reporter: did he say anything before he left? to no, he was just processed out and walked out the door. i don't suspect there was anything said. department do you know his movement -- >> reporter: do you know his movements at all times? >> we know his movements all- time when he's in the jail but not now. we are done with him now. he should've been imprisoned, never in this jail. i think everything went as planned and everyone did a good job. were >> reporter: are you in contact with the sheriff in ohio where he is headed? >> i don't know that that is where he is headed and no we are not. >> [ indiscernible - low volume ] >> i have not. i appreciate you covering it. i bring -- i think it brings the attention to everybody that we have to change the law. if you rape someone who is
6:11 am
unconscious and intoxicated, you have to go to state prison. that bill is on the governor's desk and we are urging him to sign it. i think that's a great laufer california. >> [ indiscernible - low volume ] >> outrage, it's a rape conviction, of a woman unconscious and drunk. he should not have spent time in our jail. >> [ indiscernible - low volume ] >> it already is. the bill that is on the governor's desk is to make it mandatory to go to state prison so that no county will have to be faced with this in the future. we are done with him. he's gone. he should be in prison right now. >> reporter: [ indiscernible - low volume ] >> they work with people all day long. we work in a custody environment. they do this all day long. we have 200 people in custody right now for murder. they do it and they do a great job. if they ever need assistance, we certainly are available for them.
6:12 am
>> reporter: i take it you do not agree with the 3 months that he served. >> correct, i don't agree. he should have been in state prison. it's a felony. it's a rape. six-month where you only do three months is not correct. it's not right. that's why i am hoping that this bill will change that. reporter back thank you. have a good day. -- >> reporter: thank you. have a good day. >> reporter: that was sheriff laurie smith who says we need legislative change. >>did she say anything about when -- we're watching the car -- we don't know if it's heading to the airport -- did she say when you support to report to those when he is supposed to report to ohio? >> she said she doesn't know that he is headed to ohio. we have heard that he is going to ohio and has 48 hours to check in with the probation department in ohio. the sheriff says she does not know that is a fact and has not been in contact with the sheriff of green county ohio.
6:13 am
>> jesse, i would love to ask the sheriff. is it unusual that he was allowed to walk out unescorted? that's good for us in the media so we get a clear view of him, but someone who has been sentenced to a crime like that and just walks out by himself. >> reporter: we have asked her that before. i can ask her again if you want. she said he had no special treatment. let me see if i can get back in there. i'm kind of boxed in a little bit. we have asked her the same question before and she has consistently said he is not being treated any differently than any other inmate. once you are released and processed through the front door with a deputy is posted which you saw earlier, you walk out the front door. the only thing that might be different or is different in this case is that there is so much attention for brock turner that they are put up these barricades on both sides and had him walking between come down the steps and then out.
6:14 am
that is the difference. the crusher cameras and protesters etc. out here this morning -- the crush of cameras and protesters etc., out through this morning is the big difference. >> we just want to tell people we're watching this live. that is the car that rock turner is in. we're not sure who is driving him or where they are headed exactly. >> to bring attention to this issue, i think this is a good thing. >> reporter: i will ask this question in a minute. >> i am. i think this went smoothly. i think the media for the level of coverage. >> what was the idea behind making him leave exactly like every other person? >> no special favors. they walk out like everyone else does. there's no backdoor treatment or anything. it is our policy. >> reporter: regardless of the crime, it's the same. >> regardless of the crime;
6:15 am
most of the time convicted rapists don't spend time in county jail. this is very different. were >> reporter: as you heard, she said this is just like any other inmate in the santa clara county jail. he walked out the front door. there is no change regardless of the crime. >> this is interesting. jesse and gary, always a good job. thank you. we're still watching live coverage. i don't know if you will be able to see it but we are watching the car that is carrying brock turner to where ever he is going. >> we know he is serving his probation, which is i believe three years probation, in ohio, his hometown. we spoke to a reporter for the dayton daily news at 5: 30 this morning -- 5:30 this morning. he has been covering this story in ohio. people are very happy -- unhappy there as well. he will register as a sex offender. he will back into his parents home from what we understand.
6:16 am
-- parents' home from what we understand. the reporter told us that it's a quiet neighborhood. you would not normally expect this kind of attention that is going to disband -- descend upon their neighborhood. he said the scary thing in ohio was there have been protests out there with armed protesters. they had been very vocal in their disagreement with the sentencing that brock turner gotten not happy about him returning to their area. again, on the right hand side of your screen, that is a live actor. we are following the brock turner car. he is in that car heading, we are not sure where at this point. those at the pictures of him as he was released. he was released very quickly. it happen quickly. >> reporter: and then there are the residual stories around the judge who set off a firestorm after sentencing to -- him to 6 months. there was a firestorm with people trying to recall the
6:17 am
judge. we just saw him go through a red light. >> i think they are trying to ditch our car. we know he is going to be serving probation in ohio, his home state. we understand that you do have to check in with your probation officer within 48 hours of being released. we assume he is going to be checking in there in ohio. our photographer is following the car we will see if he is headed straight to the airport. we're not sure. they are probably trying to make a very secret exit at this point. >> we will continue to cover what is happening with the brock turner release this morning produce or light back here on "mornings at 2". we will cover it all morning for you. let's now check in with sal and steve. everyone else needs to head out the door and hopefully not have to head by the courthouse. >> we have mostly clear skies,
6:18 am
a little cool for some, upper 40s were a few locations in a lot of 50s. there's not much in the way of fog. there is a sister moving into the north which is clipping the northern part of the state. there are 50s in novato, santa rosa, 54 fremont, palo alto is 53 as well as half moon bay. you don't have to go far away to see the 61s in concord. it's pretty cool here for many locations. we do get that system to the north and that is going to sweep through which will give us a fall like feel, 40s as well as 50s, 60s, 70s and some 80s. has anything developed in the traffic in the last half- hour? >> we are looking at the traffic on this friday before labor day. the bay bridge toll plaza
6:19 am
commute is going to be lighter than usual. usually we have a big back up. we don't this morning. the traffic continues to move along pretty well into san francisco. 880 is the same, traffic moving along the east bay pretty much nicely around the whole area. as we look at the maps, there's not a lot showing up. a lot of -- a little bit of slow traffic on the altamont pass and 680 in this area. >> thank you sal. the big story this morning continues where we are talking about brock turner. we will continue to follow that story throughout the morning. the other big story, all eyes were on colin kaepernick during last night's 49ers game against the scent -- the san diego chargers. >> he got down on one knee during the national anthem rather than sitting. we now have more on kaepernick. the other football players are actually showing support for him on this motion he decided to take their >> colin kaepernick -- to take.
6:20 am
>> colin kaepernick was joined by teammate eric read and they both kneeled during the performance of the star- spangled banner. you can clearly see kaepernick. eric was more difficult to see because he was partially blocked from our view and had street goes on. colin kaepernick said that his message is getting lost with people saying about how he was disrespecting the military. he says he respects the veteran -- the military and veterans but still needs to make a statement. >> i am not anti-american. i love america. i love people. that is why i am doing this. i want to help make america bigger i think having these conversations helps everybody have a better understanding of where everybody is coming from.
6:21 am
>> he also said he plans on donating $1 million to community organizations this year to help make a change for the better and he says he is considering visiting the academy at the san francisco police department to see the training that officers receive for himself. the also receive some unexpected support from jeremy lane, seattle seahawks player who stayed seated during the national anthem in oakland as night. lane says he did it mostly to show support for kaepernick. he says he will continue to sit for the national anthem until he feels justice is being served. here at home there was a somewhat mixed response to kaepernick and other players refusing to stand. many supported their right to make a statement but some said there is a time and place to make political statements and this is not the place to make it during national anthem during an nfl game. this is certainly going to be an ongoing story. in talking about monday night football, 49ers will be playing
6:22 am
on september 12. that's a tremendous audience and determine his platform to see if colin kaepernick again decides to take any or sit during the national anthem -- take a knee or sit during the national anthem. >> there's even talk about whether he will still be with the 49ers. >> absolutely. it is now 6:22. we're breaking news this morning, convicted rapist, brock turner just-released from the santa clara main jail. there is the shot. he went out quickly, straight out to the waiting car. we saw the car just moments before that pull-up. he took off just like that. he served just half of his six- month sentence for the sexual assault of an unconscious woman
6:23 am
on the stanford campus last year. that is why the attention. there are a lot of protesters out there, people unhappy about the sentencing, including sheriff laurie smith. he has to report to the probation department within 48 hours. we understand he intends to serve his probation in his home state of ohio. we are assuming that is where he is going to report. we're following a car live to see where they are headed. >> we will continue to cover the brock turner jail releases marring. you sought live here on "mornings at 2". what an ohio reporter told us this morning about what is waiting for turner when he returns to his home state, in 15 minutes.
